Talk Like Tigers Short Info

Talk Like Tigers are an emerging electro pop band from the North East of England consisting of twins - Charlotte and Stephanie, who are singers, songwriters and musicians.

Their music is brand new and is showered with the glittering harmonies that only siblings can produce, harmonies which have taken the twin sisters around the world touring as Duffy’s backing singers. They soaked up everything they could on their travels and did as much as possible from jamming with the Killers on a grand piano to dancing on bars in quirky clubs in Tokyo. Their travels have certainly influenced their writing and inspired the band to create something truly different.

Talk Like Tigers have played notable festival and headliner gigs this summer, including Generator’s Evolution Emerging Festival and Northern Electric Festival. Earlier this year, their self released singles Animalistic and Gunning attracted the attention of BBC Introducing leading them to record a BBC live session. Recently, they have been played on the Huw Stephens show on BBC Radio 1.

The band have been nominated for two UBeat Music Awards and will be performing at the awards event in December, which will be broadcast on television.

Tropical will be released on Friday 9th December and is the first single from the band’s self-titled debut EP. The lead single It isn’t Over from the EP will be out in January 2017, with the full EP released in February 2017. Tour dates will be taking place around the EP release date, details to be announced.

PRESS QUOTES ABOUT TALK LIKE TIGERS:
"A fabulous track from Talk Like Tigers. One of the new wave of North East pop acts." Nick Roberts, BBC Introducing

"Fabulous harmonies and danceable hooks that go off like roman candles. Exhilarating stuff then, with this Tiger certainly earning it's stripes from the get go" The Crack Magazine

"So much talent!" Shell Zenner, Amazing Radio

"Pounding drums, melodic synths and soaring harmonies: Talk Like Tigers have finally unveiled their debut single Animalistic, a hefty chunk of polished electro pop that's also just a little bit dirty - a taut, sensuous, almost flawlessly constructed pop gem that the likes of Robyn would be proud of. Animalistic is a ferocious electro tune that'll be stuck in your head all day.'' Eugenie Johnson, Narc Magazine

"Electro Pop at its best!! Go and buy 'Gunning' NOW!" Libby Walker, Mkfm Radio

"Talk Like Tigers are well on their way to becoming one of this year's most promising acts." Wonky Sensitive

''Talk Like Tigers rour loudly as the duo embark on an impressive journey into superstardom... The dazzling 'Gunning' video is a page ripped straight out of the Tron playbook, doused with laser beams and memerizing slow-motion intensity.'' Popdust

"I’m surprised it wasn’t recommended to me on my Spotify Discover Weekly playlist with it’s great synth beat and Robyn-esque vocals...either way, everyone should definitely be watching this band grow." Rhyme Et Reason

LIVE REVIEWS:
"Their set at a bursting-at-the-seams Tanners is energetic, catchy, harmonious (those girls can sing!), tropical and entertaining as hell!"
